It’s August in Southwest Florida, the hottest month of the year. Here are 5 top tips to keep your home cool this summer.
To optimize your comfort, set your thermostat to 78°F when you’re at home and 85°F when you’re not*.
Lower blinds or close curtains during the daytime. This prevents the sun’s heat from entering your home.
Set ceiling fans to counterclockwise. The cooling effect on your skin will make the room feel 8° cooler.
Use a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air. This will leave you feeling cooler even on the hottest days.
Cooking adds heat to your home. On hot days, avoid using the oven. Instead, grill outside or use a microwave oven.
